The movie is to be made available in Cinema’s on December 23 starring, Adesua Etomi, Wale Ojo, Ime Bishop Umoh, Theresa Edem, Majid Michel, Moses Armstrong and so many others.

In a statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES, the organisers said, “The movie which is set in Akwa-Ibom under the production of Royal Arts Academy stars; tells the story of Prince Daraima (Wole Ojo), the fascinating heir to Obong Ikpaisong, who repeatedly dreams of Ihuoma (Adesua Etomi), poor but radiating maiden whose beauty is matched only by her voice.

“He is in love with the girl of his dreams. In the real world, Prince Daraima is set to marry Princess Ama (Tinsel star, Theresa Edem), the arrogant child to a neighbouring Monarch. Princess Ama observes her groom-to-be captivated by Iko and resolves to nip this obvious threat in the bud”

According to Emem Isong, the movie“is a beautiful story mixed with different features. It is a tale of love filled with music, dance, drama and comedy. It has depth of story, very informative and entertaining and not your usual shoddy old Nollywood classic. It definitely has the whole package.”
